Kiribati: putting a face to climate change Jon Lewis

12 February 2010 to 11 April 2010

The Republic of Kiribati consists of 33 atolls and is situated in the Equatorial Pacific. It is a country under threat of storm surges, salination of fresh water, unpredictable weather and tidal increases.

The environmental impacts of climate change are contributing to the country's physical demise -tragically, it is slowly and surely going down.

In this series of 32 photographs, Jon Lewis portrays the people of Kiribati living literally on the very edge, as the most vulnerable of peoples. Their vibrant social system and culture are confronted daily by the irreversible effects of climate change. It is predicted that the nation of Kiribati has only 30-40 years left.
